MacRuby is an objective-C packaging system. Objective-C + Ruby yes, Java 
no. You won't be able to bundle the jvm in your app. Seek a non-java 
solution to accomplish whatever the gem is trying to do. What is the gem 
called? Perhaps there is an alternative?

It has a dependency on dl.h, a header that I have seen in MRI 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 inside a 1.9.1 folder (/Users/tnarik/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p125/include/ruby-1.9.1/ruby/dl.h), but not in MacRuby.
